Exclusive First Look: NBC 'Reboots' Seinfeld, Sex and the City, Golden Girls, and Fresh Prince!

Hold your horses, and don’t start that furious online petition just yet: NBC hasn’t committed any kind of television sacrilege, but rather, has whipped up a little afternoon soufflé sure to bring smiles to the faces of classic sitcom fans. As part of its campaign to promote Season 3 of The Sing-Off, the network has recruited past contestants The Backbeats and other performers to reinvent the theme songs from Seinfeld, Sex and the City, The Golden Girls, and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Check ’em out below, along with a performance of “Raise Your Glass” by a mix of Season 3 vocalists. And to get alerted to my recaps of The Sing-Off, sign up to follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I find it strange that all of the themes were from NBC shows except SATC.

  2. Michael Sacal says:

    Can’t see them.

  3. BRETT says:

    I’m sorry, but I love how you create the headline, and then tell people not to worry. Thanks for the LOL!

  4. Justin says:

    The only show worse than this is DWTS, but I have to say, this is pretty awesome.

  5. Cass says:

    I should have liked to have heard them do the FRASIER theme song. That was NBC, too.

  6. E says:

    I’m just gonna file this under “Favorite Commercials”. Totally made me smile. :)

  7. David F. says:

    Whoever wrote the headline is an asshole.

    That is all.

    Move along.

    • Jon says:

      Agreed… this has about as much to do with an actual “reboot” as the headline’s writer has to do with factual reporting. Way to get people’s attention with a total lie.

  8. Mellie says:

    Sigh. Anyone have links that people outside of the US can watch these vids at?

  9. Mikaylah says:

    I love the Sing-Off! It’s nice to see an A Capella singing competition. That is true talent.

  10. SharonM says:

    You know, I was looking forward to watching these vids, but once the advertisement started, I had to tune out.

  11. Jess N says:

    Of course the only black guy on stage is the one rapping The Fresh Prince theme…

  12. b says:

    I can’t wait til this site decides to join the 21st century and offer HTML5 videos instead of flash!

  13. Kalie says:

    Wow, that’s really lame.

  14. uhyeahright says:

    Just tell us the truth in the headline; I still would’ve clicked on it! I almost wanted to slap myself when they kept saying N B C at the end of each song and that stupid giggling afterwards. I’d say the best one they did was the last one — the ripoff of Raise Your Glass.

    • Dwayne says:

      Of course they will say NBC at the end..it’s a promo spot. Just like the other ones they air on NBC but instead of just the chimes they just had the groups say NBC.

  15. Jamie says:

    Wow… Whoever wrote that headline is a total a$$hole. I thought this was supposed to be an entertainment news site? You could at least pretend to have some class and dignity instead of fabricating and exaggerating stories like you’re a spammer in people’s inbox. Grow up.

  16. L says:

    Can’t Wait!! Love this show!

  17. JaimeL says:

    You know you deliberately wrote that headline to get people to freak out and click on it. Lame.

  18. makesmemad says:

    When will this country specific blocking end already! Why don’t you want me to see this, NBC? Don’t you get that the internet and social media reaches a GLOBAL audience?

  19. lala says:

    I am so sick of that “Raise Your Glass” song.

    But the SATC re-do was cool.

  20. John says:

    Is anyone else irritated that the “N-B-C” chimes tune is wrong?

    It’s supposed to go Sol-Mi-Do, not Do-Sol-Mi.
